A car veered onto a Connecticut Avenue sidewalk and struck a woman and a high-rise building Tuesday, before the vehicle careened back into the street and hit two cars, D.C. police said.
The woman who was struck by the car was taken to a hospital after a Honda sedan struck her just north of L Street about 6:15 p.m., officials said.
According to initial accounts, the Honda’s driver lost control of the vehicle and the car turned to the right, hopped a curb and struck the building at 1100 Connecticut Ave. The Honda then veered back to the street, where it hit a taxi and an Audi.
Police shut down two blocks of southbound Connecticut Avenue while they investigated.
